The Book Bin is a locally owned, family operated business that has been in the same family since 1984. Three generations currently spend their time between the Corvallis store and the two Salem stores. Book Bin East is the most recent store, on Salem’s Lancaster Drive; it opened in the fall of 2013. While it is still growing, there is one thing we know for sure it will have soon: a coffee shop. Corvallis and Downtown Salem both have feline mascots: Tess in Corvallis, the grandmotherly matron of the Book Bin, and Rose in Salem, who is young, frisky, and shares a birthday with H. P. Lovecraft. Tess Rose...Read More

I’ve been a fan of Nate Powell for a long time.
I first encountered his work more than a decade ago when I worked as an assistant editor at Dark Horse Comics. Nate sent in samples of his work to see if we’d publish him, and I championed his intense, beautifully-drawn comics. Nothing came of that, unfortunately, but it didn’t seem to hurt Nate too badly. He went on to receive a grant from Shakespeare and company Books to self-publish his first comics series, Walkie-Talkie. Tiny Giants and the Ignatz-Award-winning Swallow Me Whole came followed from Soft Skull Press and Top Shelf respectively. So, yeah, he dealt with the rejection well.
